Cross Language Information Retrieval (CLIR) enables people to search information written in different languages from their query languages. Information can be retrieved either from a single cross lingual collection or from a variety of dis-tributed cross lingual sources. This paper pre-sents initial results exploring the effectiveness of distributed CLIR using query-based sampling techniques, which to the best of our knowledge has not been investigated before. In distributed retrieval with multiple databases, query-based sampling provides a simple and effective way for acquiring accurate resource descriptions which helps to select which databases to search. Obser-vations from our initial experiments show that the negative impact of query-based sampling on cross language search may not be as great as it is on monolingual retrieval.
